    During wedding time at Hyderabad, we had 4hrs of time to spare.
    Booked this fantastic Palatial experience. We had Hi Tea and the historian
    took us round. The paintings on the ceilings of Falakhnuma palace were
    ashtonishing of that era. Highly recomend if you are in Hyderabad.

    John was THE BEST! So jovial, well-experienced with close to 30 years of experience and you can really see that he is truly passionate in his job. Total service from the heart, very helpful and gave very in-depth insights into the history of how Hyderabad came about, and how the history has shaped the various architectural landmarks that you will see there. We visited various locations in one day such as Golkonda Fort (he climbed up all the way to the top with us!), Qutb Shahi Tombs, skipped the line for the best briyani in town (Shadaab Hotel), Charminar and shopping within the area.

    We are so grateful to have engaged your services John! Thank you, will 100% recommend

    Madhu was a great guide and I really enjoyed myself on this tour! My tour took place in the morning before things got too crowded, so it was not too crowded at all. Madhu was knowledgeable, friendly, and very fun to tour with. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hyderabad!

    Just a great experience start to finish. John was an amazing guide. By the end of the day, he felt like an old friend. He is an excellent teacher and pretty damn funny to boot. This was our first time in Hyderabad and he made us feel safe and at ease so we could appreciate the character in the chaos. Easy pick up and drop off from our hotel and very responsive every step of the way. It was our first time in Hyderabad, and India , and it can be a bit overwhelming, but we felt completely comfortable throughout the tour. I felt that it was an excellent value. Great way to start off a trip here to get the lay of the land . John helped us find a few treasures and even helped us shave a few rupees of the price! Moreover, he made he directed us to local vendors without making us feel as though we were pressured to buy anything. I will not hesitate to recommend John to anyone visiting Hyderabad . When you walk through the bazaar, you can tell he is a friend to all. He also is amenable and flexible as ro accommodating other experiences and tours.

    To get the most out of my short time in Hyderabad, I booked this full-day tour along with a half-day walking tour the following morning (also through Five Senses). John was my guide for both tours, and he was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. He noticed that I was taking a lot of photos of architectural details at each site and tailored the tour accordingly (without me asking) by offering suggestions for photo spots and insights into the architecture as I was shooting. I would highly recommend this tour (also the “Guided Old City Walk”), especially if you can have John as your guide.

    Picked up promptly at my Hotel by Azam, my tour guide, and our driver. Azam skilfully organised the itinerary so that we missed the crowds and made the most of the good weather ( rainy season at present) we saw all the major sights, Charminar, Hussain Sagar lake and Buddha Statue. Golconda Fort, Nizams Palace , Salar Jung Museum, Birla Mandi Temple. We stopped for lunch at 1pm, included in the price. Azam displayed good knowledge of the history of Hyderabad, and nothing was too much trouble.
    Would thoroughly recommend if you have limited time to see the major sites.

    This was a great tour to go on outside of the city of Hyderabad and gain more knowledge of the reach expansive history of India and observe some of the beauty and culture that is here. The tour was well done and the guide John did a great job providing information

    We had an extra day in Hyderabad and this was exactly what we were looking for, our only regret is that we signed up for a half-day instead of full day tour! All transportation (in an A/C car with hotel pickup) and entrance tickets were included and it truly was a private tour so we could go at our own pace. John, our guide, has lived in Hyderabad for 20+ years and has extensive knowledge about its history as well as current happenings around the city.

    Fantastic tour lead by our very knowledgeable guide Madhu. He took his time to explain things and his English was excellent. He communicated very well before the tour to let us know exactly where to meet him. He even took us for a cup of chai to his favourite place and most importantly, stopped us being hassled by any one offering tours, gifts or otherwise.
